You can opt to obtain diesel from local petrol depots where you can find all of the necessary equipment and fuel on hand; you could choose to make use of on-site fleet fuelling equipment, or you could opt for a combination of both approaches for greater flexibility.

Fuel is the driving force behind any logistics company, often accounting for the greatest expense, it is the most essential component for any business that makes use of vehicles; whether that be in construction, engineering, mining or simply logistics.

For business owners who rely on a steady supply of fuel, the choice between using depots or on-site fueling stations can be a difficult one to make, with positive arguments for either side.

So, to help your business make the best possible choice in this regard, let’s explore what you can get out of on-site fleet fuelling facilities.

We will do this by exploring what it is exactly, then we will go over the pros and cons of doing so, and will help you ask the right questions to determine if it is the best approach for you.

What is On-Site Fleet Fuelling?

As you may have guessed from the name, on-site fleet fuelling offers an alternative way for businesses to refuel their fleet that offers more convenience, security, efficiency, economy and control.

This is done by having bulk amounts of the required fuel delivered directly to sites, from where businesses can refuel their fleets then and there.

These saves businesses needing to send their fleets to petrol depots, where they may experience delays or incur additional transportation costs.

Equipment is stored on-site that allows massive amounts of the relative fuel to be stored. From there it can be used to refill fleets at your convenience while ensuring that there is enough of it on hand to keep your fleets in working order.

The Top Benefits to On-Site Fleet Fuelling

There are a number of benefits associated with on-site fleet fuelling when compared to making use of off-site depots.

Some of these advantages are most prominent in the long-run when the overall expenses and profits of your project are compared; while others have an immediate positive effect on your business.

These benefits include enhanced convenience and efficiency when filling up fleets, improved access to fuel whenever your business needs it, enhanced security and control over both fleets and fuel, and savings on logistics activities.

Let’s take a closer look at each of these benefits here:

Enhanced Convenience

If you have been taking your fleet to a depot every time one of your vehicles need to be filled, you are likely used to doing it, and so don’t notice the inconvenience of having to get your vehicles there on time before daily tasks begin.

It is time-consuming and can be costly in the long run.

By fuelling up on-site, you will be able to cut those expected minutes out of each day. While the immediate time and effort saved don’t seem to amount to much, consider the accumulated effect of doing it throughout the year, or even over a few years.

This will free up much needed time and manpower for your business or project, which can be applied to other areas to enhance the efficiency of your tasks; all thanks to that bit of convenience added to the formula.

Improved Access to Fuel

In any line of work, but particularly those where large fleets are being managed, emergencies may crop up from time to time, and you need to be adequately prepared when they do.

Being stuck in a situation where you need sudden access to fuel for your fleet can be daunting, and matters are only made worse when you don’t have what you need on hand.

There may not be enough time to take your fleet to a depot when you have a sudden need for fuel, which can, amongst other things, result in expensive delays to your project.

Having an on-site fleet fuelling facility will ensure that you never have to deal with an emergency while unprepared.

Ensure Fuel & Fleet Security

You have very little control over the security of your fleet or the fuel it uses when sending vehicles to a depot. And let’s face it, here in South Africa, security is always a concern.

By utilising on-site fleet fuelling services, your business will gain improved control over the security of both its fleet and the fuel that it uses.

This is because they can be secured on your own facility, using protocols that you trust and are comfortable with. This will allow you to more closely manage security and prevent tampering or pilfering from both external sources or internal ones.

Long-Term Logistical Savings

Anybody involved in the logistics industry understands just how impactful even the smallest of savings can be. The slightest adjustments to routes, fuel suppliers and the like can have a massive impact on overall profitability and expenses.

Because of this, any solution that cuts out a part of a daily journey can result in massive savings over a long period of time.

Since on-site fleet fuelling allows your businesses to cut out those extra kilometres that would be used ongoing to and from depots, by allowing them to fill up on-site, it is one of the best ways for fleet managers to actualise long-term savings.

Keeping Time on Your Side

Efficiency and economy are the names of the game in just about any industry that uses fleets for its daily operations. This is as true for those vehicles in the mining and construction industries as it is for general logistics or distribution.

Time is money and in logistics, every second count. Those few minutes that it takes your vehicles to get to and from a depot may not seem like much at face value, but when the clock is against you, they can make all the difference.

Let’s say it takes about 10 minutes each day to fill up a truck. Now multiply those minutes by each vehicle in your fleet. Now multiply that number by each day that you need to do it. Suddenly that meagre 10 minutes can start to look like a few hours of wasted time each year.

But not with on-site fleet fuelling where refilling is all but instant.

Improved Control of Fuel Inventory

With on-site fleet fuelling facilities, you will be able to take a closer, more detailed stock of your fuel inventory at any given time, especially when implemented alongside watertight monitoring and tracking procedures that account for every drop of fuel.

This will allow your business to take better charge of its expenses and consumption and will allow for more detailed planning for future tasks.

In industries that make use of large fleets, not enough can be said about how strict stock control can result in a better bottom line, with fuel quantities being monitored and accounted for, right down to the last millilitre.

The Drawbacks of On-Site Fleet Fuelling

Of course, as it is with anything in life, you have to take the good with the bad when opting for just about any solution.

While on-site fleet fuelling does provide a staggering number of benefits to the businesses that use them, they also come with one or two downsides.

Of course, these can be fairly easily navigated through with the right control systems in place, and by ensuring that you pick the right supplier.

They include your liability to the environment, as well as ever-changing policies around environmental protection; a need for systems that can effectively monitor and control the consumption of fuel, a need for skilled staff and specific equipment, and a challenge for businesses using fleets that use different types of fuel.

Let’s explore each of these in a little more detail:

Environmental Liability

Fleet managers who make use of on-site fleet filling stations need to be up to date with environmental laws and regulations. The very nature of dealing with fuel makes it a potentially hazardous substance where the environment is concerned.

With an ever-increasing amount of pressure on businesses to be more responsible towards the environment, these expectations are important to adhere to.

Of course, by partnering with the right fuel supplier, much of these regulations and laws will already be seen to by the time fuel arrives at your facility, alongside equipment that will allow it to be stored and used safely.

Monitoring & Tracking Fuel Consumption

To ensure that you get the most benefit out of on-site fleet fuelling stations, it is essential to enact strict systems of control, tracking and monitoring.

Without the right security and tracking measures in place, you may find your reserves being pilfered, either by your own employees or by outside opportunists.

Having abundant fuel on-site does make your business a bit of a target for criminal activity, but by sourcing equipment from the right supplier, you should be able to stay on top of monitoring, tracking and control, as well as security.

Staff & Equipment Requirements

Making use of on-site fleet fueling stations also means that you will need to have the right storage and pumping equipment on-hand.

This might come at a hefty investment cost, but through the right supplier, can be obtained as part of your agreement with them.

There may also be a need to upskill your workforce to ensure that they use the equipment as directed. But again, training is often supplied by providers when it is needed; so be sure to ask your supplier about it.

Fleets Using Multiple Fuel Types

If your business’ fleet makes use of vehicles that use different types of fuel, it may not be practical, or even possible to accommodate for all of them on-site.

Each different type of fuel will need to be stored separately, and as such, will require a large amount of space and specialised equipment.

So, to accommodate for different fuel types, you will need to make sure that your facility can hold (and indeed afford) to use different types of filling stations on-site.

Deciding Whether Your Business Will Benefit

Noe for the big question. Should your business consider making use of on-site fleet filling stations? Would your operations be able to use the abovementioned benefits, and will it be able to withstand the disadvantages of doing so?

The answer to these questions will depend on the nature of your business, but asking the right questions will give you a better idea of whether or not to do it.

Are you Spending too Much on Fuel?

If you find that your business is spending more than it ought to on fuel then on-site filling might be the answer.

Remember that savings can be made particularly by cutting out unnecessary trips to the depot. You may also be able to strike up deals on bulk amounts of fuel by negotiating with the supplier.

Does Filling Up Cause Delays?

If you find that too much of your operating hours are spent on going to and from fuel depots and that this is cutting into your schedule, then on-site fleet filling stations might be the perfect answer for reducing wasted time.

Do You Suffer from Unexpected Fuel Demands?

If your fuel demands vary from operation to operation it can be difficult to prepare adequately for fluctuations on-demand, which can result in delays, downtime and unnecessary expenses.

Having fuel on-site and readily available will allow you to circumvent this issue.

Do You Need Better Control Over Fuel Management?
